Sophie focuses her practice in the areas of employment and labour law, entertainment law and in alternative dispute resolution methods. Her pragmatism, transparency and creativity in her approach of every file make her a dedicated legal and strategic advisor who is always attentive to the needs of her clients.
In the course of her practice, she represents businesses in front of civil, administrative and arbitration tribunals in matters involving employment and labour relations in both non-unionized and unionized settings. She also acts as a strategic business partner with her clients by advising them on multiple matters regarding labour standards and collective or group agreements, disciplinary and administrative sanctions, human rights and freedoms, and by assisting her clients in the drafting and the implementation of various policies and guidelines necessary for the sound management of human resources.
Sophie is also known for her popularizer skills, which makes her a trainer appreciated by her clientele, to whom she offers content adapted to their environment.
Moreover, her strong interest for alternative dispute resolution methods led her to become a certified mediator by the Barreau du Québec in civil, commercial and labor mediation, which she has held since 2019.
Before joining the firm Sophie practiced at a national law firm where she began her practice in 2009, before moving to the Association québécoise de l’industrie du disque, du spectacle et de la vidéo as labour relations counsel, followed by a position as legal counsel – human resources of a company in the aeronautics industry. She then returned to private practice in a renowned Quebec law firm in labour and employment law.
She carries on her practice in both English and French.
